(Sung in Swahili)

Ombi langu Bwana nifike kwako (My prayer Lord, is to reach to You)
Ijapo njia zangu ni nyembamba (Though my paths be narrow)
Nitembee nawe Yesu Mwokozi wangu (To walk with You, Jesus my savior)
Dhoruba zijapo nitazishinda (I shall conquer the storms that come my way)

Refrain:
Mtakatifu Mungu mwenyezi (Holy God Almighty)
Alfajiri sifa zako tutaimba (We will sing Your praises at dawn)
Malaika wengi wanakuabudu (Host of Angels worship You)
Elfu maelfu wanakusujudu (Thousands and tens of thousands bow before You)
Ingawa giza linatuficha (Though the darkness hide us)
Fahari tusione (We should not be proud)
Wewe utatuwezesha mbinguni (For You will lead us unto heaven)
Makao ya raha (The home of joy)

Nitembee nawe Mungu (To walk with You God)
Unene nami kwa upole (Speak to me gently)
Ingawa njia sioni (Though I do not see the path)
Maana dhoruba baharini (For the sea is stormy)
Mitego ya miguu elfu (And there are traps for a thousand lengs)
Ukinishika mkono (But if You hold my hands)
Anasa kwangu hasara (Earthly luxuries for me are meaningless)
Tautika msalaba (I shall carry the cross)
Hata mji wa Zayuni (Until the city of Zion)
(Mimi) Nitapata pumziko (Where I shall find rest)

Repeat: (Mimi) Nitapata pumziko (Where I shall find rest)
Ule mji wa Zayuni (In that City of Zion)
Kwetu mji wa Zayuni (Our City of Zion)

(Refrain)
